UNFORTUNATELY we didn’t have a lot of luck yesterday with only one of the three legs saluting, however there is plenty of racing today and hopefully we can kick off the new year with a nice collect at the Gosford Gold Cup meeting.
Leg 1 – Gosford – Race 1: Taro Tron To Win $3.75
Taro Tron is a highly promising speedster and he has been racing in sizzling fashion. He has recorded two brilliant placings at Maitland recently in very strong company and he should appreciate the drop in class tonight. I’m expecting him to begin well and he should settle in the top two, with a clear passage mid race he should be able to set up a nice break and he should be scoring. He is currently $3.75 which is well over the odds as I expect him to start a lot shorter come race time.
Leg 2 – Gosford – Race 2: Elusive Zesta To Win $1.90
Elusive Zesta is a class act on her night and although she is dropping in distance she should have too many problems. She has done most of her recent racing over the 520m journey, however she has won two of three over this track and trip and she recorded her PB from this pin. She has a wide runner directly on her outside, so if she comes out on terms she will get plenty of room to push through and that should allow her to dash away mid race.
Leg 3 – Gosford – Race 6: Zipping Carter To Place $3.10
Zipping Carter has been a little disappointing in recent times, however there is no doubting he is an enormous talent when on song and I think tonight he is drawn to make an impact. I’m expecting the one and two to punch through and hold the early lead, if he can step on terms he should be able to drift across and find the rail and settle in the top four. He is extremely strong in the run to the line and if he is close enough mid race he is more than capable of winning at the $12 mark.
